The Edmonton Oilers have a unique opportunity this season, one they won’t ever get again. Connor McDavid is the reigning NHL MVP, and thanks to cost-controlled entry-level contracts he’s easily the best bargain in the league for another season. The Edmonton Oilers are only on the hook for $3.775 million for his services. That figure jumps to $12.5 million in 2018-19, with the difference between those two figures representing roughly 12 per cent of the entire Oilers cap space.
Over the offseason, the Calgary Flames have revamped their goaltending and shored up their blueline. The forward corps, on the other hand, is largely unchangedâ€”and the changes that were made had more to do with subtracting pieces to make room for prospects, rather than adding proven talent. Itâ€™s not a surprise then that when GM Brad Treliving spoke to TSNâ€™s Bob McKenzie last week, goal-scoring was (outside of health) the area of greatest concern.
I don’t have any specific inside knowledge to offer on his situation, but if I had to bet my guess would be that Daniel Winnik will be in the NHL again in 2017-18, expanding on his 700-odd career games. The 32-year-old forward is still unsigned and may need to accept a professional tryout offer to make it happen, but he’s a well-rounded player who had 12 goals and 25 points in precious little ice-time on a very good team last year.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
